DNA Might be the Best Bargaining Chip We Have With Aliens

DNA Might be the Best Bargaining Chip We Have With Aliens

If we ever needed to barter with an advanced alien species, our DNA might be the best currency we could offer, according to Daniel Helman, a professor of Labor Relations and Trade Unions at Ton Duc Thang University in Vietnam.

That’s because our technology would likely be antiquated compared to theirs, making it essentially useless in trading and bargaining. But if we could give them something completely unique to our specific planet, there’s a good chance they may be interested.

Helman first proposed this idea at the International Space Development Conference, and later expanded on it in an interview with Motherboard.

Our DNA he said, is like a record of millions of years of evolution and interaction with Earth’s environment, and if we could give them mapped-out documentation of this, they may consider it useful. The Human Genome Project and other attempts to catalogue our DNA would be a good starting point to begin negotiations.

Barring the possibility these extraterrestrials might have some sort of highly advanced system to fast track DNA sequencing, we would already have a solid foundation of background knowledge in epigenetics – how the environment affects the expression of genes – and evolutionary processes that have led to most modern species on Earth.

Helman also points out that he believes our gradual destruction of biodiversity on the planet lowers the number of bargaining chips we hypothetically have to trade. The more animals go extinct, the less DNA we have – unless we start storing embryos and DNA samples in the Doomsday Vault.

Though, one concern with Helman’s idea is that giving up the building blocks to life on Earth might lead extraterrestrials to develop diseases that could wipe us out. But if they had technology vastly superior to anything we have, they would probably have the means to destroy us in a number of ways.

Essentially, the argument hinges on whether these extraterrestrial visitors are bent on conquering or making friends with us. A timeless hypothetical, but for the sake of Helman’s argument, we should consider the latter scenario.

And in the sense that our biggest obstacle to the next level of technological advancement is surviving ourselves, it’s more likely that developed alien species would lean towards the peaceful side. For us, perpetual global conflicts and the looming threat of nuclear war could be the deciding factor in whether we continue as a species that explores the galaxy or destroys itself.

So, if an alien race has advanced far enough to make it to Earth, it’s likely our global infighting and environmental destruction would look petty and archaic to them. So it might be time we develop a disruptive marketing strategy for our DNA, and prepare for an intergalactic game of poker.

MUFON and the Alien Agenda


Billy Meier: The Controversial Contactee

Billy Meier: The Controversial Contactee

In 1942, five-year-old Eduard Albert Meier — later known as “Billy” Meier — wandered far from the bucolic farms and sweeping countryside of the Swiss town of Bülach, and deep into the woods. Here he came upon an elderly-looking gentleman named Sfath, who was standing in the dense forest wearing garb that resembled a deep-sea diving suit without the helmet.

Despite the man’s odd appearance, the little boy did not fear him, and the two struck up a conversation — telepathically. This was to be the first of what Meier claimed to have been lifelong interactions with beings from other planets.

Now an icon in the UFO community, Meier has gained a loyal following of those who readily accept his claim that he is the seventh world prophet, in the footsteps of Enoch, Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jesus, and Mohammed, heralding the coming of World Wars, intergalactic discoveries, environmental disasters, and more.

Vehemently condemned by skeptics, yet worshipped by those who’ve taken to heart his many encounters of the fifth kind, and thousands of published documents, Meier has garnered the attention of a global audience.

Billy Meier: A Peculiar Young Man

Meier was born to an ordinary family with loving parents who raised him and his siblings in a quaint village previously unknown for anything extraordinary. As a small boy, like other children, he would play in the nearby woods, where his otherworldly relationship with Sfath would strengthen and last for eleven years. According to Meier, the two would hold conversations either outside, or with numerous other individuals on Sfath’s spacecraft.

Sfath became Meier’s first teacher and the one who would lead him to countless interactions with other alien beings. Meier claims to have traveled the world over on Sfath’s spacecraft, meeting various earthly leaders with whom Sfath was acquainted, including the venerable Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
